Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0876854889, Paperback)According to Kenneth Rexroth, the San Francisco Renaissance the literary and countercultural movement that prefigured Black Mountain, the Beats, and the hippies "owed more to Robert Duncan than to any other one person." Following the publication of his first book of poetry, the self-mythologizing Heavenly City, Earthly City (1947), Duncan functioned as shaman of an emerging aesthetic grounded in magic, polytheism, and sexual freedom, a role that he cultivated in weekly Berkeley literary salons. For his biographer, Ekbert Faas, the mystic-poet Duncan was a harbinger of the coming cultural revolution, the iconic "guru" figure who, in the late 1940s, pried opened the door to the late 1960s.
